So far, so good!
27 May 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I think its pretty good. I had my doubts that it could live up to the original Bob and Doug, especially when I found out about Bob McKenzie being replaced (although whats-his-face isn't too bad..I couldn't tell the difference at first) It keeps the original comedy of the Great White North sketches in narrative cut scenes by Bob and Doug, while also focusing on their lives, which I think is a pretty good idea.

The modern day humor takes some getting use to. It tends to imitate the comedy style of Family Guy and South Park a little too much. (with graphic violence and satirical humor..though the jokes are a bit 'cleaner')

But all and all, I'd say its decent enough. It's probably the first Canadian adult-humored animated series and if you're Canadian you'll most likely appreciate the jokes. If you're a long time Bob and Doug fan, like I said, the modernized humor takes some getting use to, but it isn't that major and Bob and Doug seem quite in character. Its good for a few laughs to say the least.
